Task Card Set Up
Print the task cards and cut in quarters to separate the four cards on each page. (I like to print them on colored paper and laminate to use over and over.) Post the task cards around the classroom (My students love when I build the excitement by hiding a couple cards under tables and behind doors). Alternatively, you may place all of the cards at a science or reading center.

Pass out the student response sheets. Ask students to read the words in the word bank to determine what the words have in common. Direct them to check their answer at the bottom left of the sheet. (Answer: All of the words have to do with the water cycle!).

Student Task (Option 1)
Independently or in pairs, students locate task cards with their copy of the student response sheet. Students read the clues carefully to determine which word bank word is being described. The cards can be read in any order. Students simply record their answers on the line that matches the number on the bottom left of each task card.

Student Task (Option 2)
Provide students with the task cards and color photographs displaying the labeled images of the vocabulary terms. Students match the picture cards and task card descriptions. Finally, students record their answers on the response sheet.

Differentiation: Make it fit your students’ needs!  A few ideas…

Allow students to preview the images using the included labeled image cards prior to starting the task card activity. Post and discuss new water cycle vocabulary and facilitate a group discussion to elicit background knowledge of the water cycle.

Laminate the cards or place the cards in clear page protectors. Allow students to use dry erase marker to underline the clues that help them make their inferences.

Underline a few key clues during the whole group discussion to scaffold specific cards you feel may be extra challenging for your students.

Extensions:
Post the labeled image cards on your word wall for student reference. Refer to the pictures when discussing the water cycle and weather and when making inferences throughout the year to connect new concepts to students’ prior knowledge.

Have students sort the labeled picture cards into different categories and explain their reasoning verbally or in writing to justify each placement.

Collect weather forecasts from newspapers or online websites. Have students write or tell about the weather in each forecast using the picture word cards.

Have students write a story about day with crazy weather, using as many of the terms on the picture word cards as possible.
